* “Senior Centers”:http://www.seniorservices.org/sc/centers.htm. A good list is here. There are centers in the Central District, Ballard, West Seattle. The Central District one has $12 dues and they run a variety of activities. It is at Jackson and 30th
* “Community Centers”:http://www.cityofseattle.net/parks/centers/index.htm. These are general purpose community centers. The Montlake Center is under construction, but “Miller Community Center”:http://www.cityofseattle.net/parks/centers/miller.htm is close by and has buried in a “pdf”:http://www.cityofseattle.net/parks/centers/Miller/Spring06.pdf
